    First hand knowledge. I worked in Engineering at The Monarch for 10 years, and had a long discussion with the chief engineer at the time. We went through the books he had and they were way off.

    Way off in what respect?
    When were s/n's assigned, when the machine entered the assembly process or when it shipped?

    The years list for serial numbers rangers were off by as much as 10 years. Some listing had completely wrong serial numbers. There are a lot of holes with them. I think the list here is a good source as it coming of real machines.

    Believe it, Leigh. Just the tiny snapshot of US & Canadian goods being re-prioritized, and more than once as War Two became a "World" war shows there HAD to be adaptations.

    The "Great" Depression had been preceded by War One, and a slump afterwards as well.

    CUSTOMERS who had ordered a machine-tool even went out of business during such times of turmoil. MMT had to adapt, same as any other primary manufacturer had to do.

    Eat and pay the bills first. Do the paperwork, later.

    All "pre computer", too, BTW, so not without human labour input, and who knows, even John, how many OTHER tasks the administrative folks involved also had to take care of?

    Or even IF there WERE dedicated "administrative" folks? MMT was NOT a Government Department, staffed off the back of Congressional allocations.

    Lean, mean, and HUNGRY, earning their own way against some tough competitors as they went along, rather.

    Default Just Purchased s/n 49153

    The 49159 does not match the table that well (would have been 1966). However, the 30 inchers being rare, it could have been sitting for a while.

    just purchased s/n 49153 of which was manufactured in 1967 and is also a 10ee x 30 with ELSR and was originally Sold to Matrix in NJ.

    My Monarch 10EE was delivered to Buick Motors in November 1944. It's serial number is 26080. It came with the electronic leadscrew, tailstock, follow rest and steady rest, (the original invoice, manual and shipping papers came with the machine) unfortunately the last two didn't make it to me ))-:

    Post #32 (mine about my serial number and an interesting symbol) was followed by #34 where Bill suggested the bed had been re-ground, and #36 where Leigh said the interesting symbol was US Army Ordnance Corps . . . not that any of this 'really' matters, but does the suggestion the bed was re-ground and the serial number re-stamped, still hold? Any way to confirm? Merely curious and wish I'd thought to inquire when the posts was still active-ish. As for the machine, I remain very pleased with it.
